21 Nov’15: Porter Hat-trick lifts Men’s 1s to 3rd

Ashford 2nd XI 0-5 BBHC Men’s 1st XI On a freezing afternoon Men’s 1s were travelling away to face Ashford. With the game against the top of the league the following week BB knew they needed to win to keep the pressure on the top of the table. BB started off strong and took advantage […]

21 Nov ’15: Even 12 men can’t stop Holcombe (Men’s 3s)

Holcombe Men’s 5s 4-2 BBHC Men’s 3rd XI Huddled together with the 2nd XI while everyone tried to stay warm and dry at the clubhouse waiting for their respective drivers, pre-match banter consisted of Who knew a giraffe had 7 bones in its neck* It’s gotten cold this week hasn’t it, and Today’s game might be tough, Holcombe are […]

14 Nov ’15: Lights, camera, action (Men’s 1s)

BBHC M1s - coming to a multiplex near you...

After a disappointing loss away to Cliftonville the previous week BB needed a positive reaction against Sevenoaks to keep pressure on teams at the top of the league. BB had a good start with Steve Porter intercepting a poor pass from the Sevenoaks defence within the opening minutes but today was not a good day […]

14 Nov ’15: Rain dance works for Men’s 3s

Danger Deep water sign. Not seen at Gillingham

BBHC Men’s 3rd XI 3-0 Canterbury Squires This game had everything, including goals (obviously), a clean sheet and a Danny Eyre aerial. With no game last week, 3’s were in a buoyant mood. I put it down to the extended undefeated streak plus James Smith was back after a 7 month lay-off. Last week at Anchorian’s looked like this: Back to this […]

7 Nov’15: Cliftonville 3-0 BBHC Men’s 1st XI

Match report by Horse And so the winning run came to an end. A sluggish start to the match was rewarded with BBHC conceding inside the first 10 minutes. A tame aerial, from the half way line, which cleared both midfield and defence, put the B’s on the back foot. Opportunities to avert the danger […]

17 Oct’15: BBHC Men’s 1st XI 3-1 Old Bordenian 2nd XI


BBHC were quick out of the blocks and keen to attack from the off. An early run down the right and cross from Karan Chana almost saw the home side take the lead but Sumeet Dhinsa failed to apply the finishing touch.  BBHC didn’t have to wait long for the opener however as another raid […]

10 Oct ’15: Sweeping Moves and Mendis Scores (Men’s 2s)

Bromley & Beckenham 5th XI 2-3 BBHC Men’s 2nd XI On Saturday the 2’s went 2-0 up in the first 10 minutes against a determined BromBecks side, but continued to play a good, fast moving game to see the game out with all 3 points. The game started at a high tempo, BromBecks having an expert drag-flicker who […]

10 Oct ’15: BBHC Men’s 3rd XI 0-9 Maidstone 4th XI

Match report by John: To say this was not the result we were looking for after last week’s away win at Sutton Valence is an understatement. On Friday evening we had 11 players, but with the 2nd team struggling and taking a player from us we played this game with 10 players against an experienced […]

BBHC Men’s 1st XI 3-1 Maidstone 2nd XI Match report by Kev: This week saw BBHC mens 1st gain their first 3 points of the season. The game started at a frantic pace with both teams looking to gain control. After 10-15 minutes BB looked like the team mostly likely to score after having 3 […]

3 Oct ’15: Breakfast at Sutton Valence (Men’s 3s)

Sutton Valence 3rd XI 0-1 BBHC Men’s 3rd XI Since coming back to hockey a few seasons ago, I have learnt several new phrases. Most of them are associated with conceding goals or turn out to be people’s names (Goals continues to mystify me). One of them is associated with fixture times for matches in the middle […]
